Vic Pol Dealing with Perpetrators within its Ranks

In an Australian first, Victoria Police has launched a policy for dealing with perpetrators of family violence within its ranks.

The policy aims to clarify the roles, responsibilities and procedures police must follow when responding to family violence involving their colleagues.

The policy includes the establishment of a new model for allocating family violence cases involving police, and a new unit dedicated to investigating the most serious and complex matters.
